    Under the article, the link to the "next" article is "Yoga and Multiple Sclerosis", which is coincidentally a very accurate description of how I felt after my only 24HCD experience.

    That's two gross.

    (Perfect set-up for "Nothing's too gross for THIS graphic novel.") I'm envious of
    how well the carefully recorded math worked out on that.

    As editor of three anthologies of 24 Hour Comics Day stories, I must say that Kevin rocked the event quite hard. He did not shy away from picking a difficult-to-rush-through subject for his work. (An earlier Shanks adventure, filled with carefully-detailed ships, was chosen for 24 Hour Comics Day Highlights 2005, now out of print.)
    The date for this fall's 24 Hour Comics Day has not yet been announced, but I urge everyone to consider taking part. You'll learn a lot about what you're capable of, and likely have a lot of fun along the way!
